Just Four Days Until We Vote

Elections 2018It's hard to believe our Be a Voter! Election Day counter has ticked down to only four, but it's true: next Tuesday, May 8, the winners in each party are chosen in our Primary election, and will go on to face off in November's midterm General Election. Lots of public offices—from US Senator and US House Representative, to state-level reps, to (depending on exactly where you live) more local positions like County Prosecutor and City Council member—are up for grabs.
